A New Year & Another Birthday

It's my birthday!

Hello Friends....

Well another year has come and another
birthday for me! Geeze, they seem to be
coming faster all the time! I am not sure
that there was really a year in between the
last one and this one! I am supposed to go
buy an exercise bike, but I guess it can wait
a few days. My hubby's birthday is this week
too....We don't usually have birthday cakes
since we usually have eaten so much fudge
and such during December.

I need to craft a lot more this year and not read
the blogs as much. Also, I need to exercise a
lot and lose weight. I want to see a new me in
the mirror... LOL....You know what happens
when you keep gaining weight in the middle?
You get shaped like a football, smaller on both
ends and big in the middle! LOL...It's ok for
a football, but I don't want to be shaped like

Well, it took two days to get all the Christmas
decor packed back up. I sorted it as I got it
out and then whenI packed it up. I put all
the lights for inside and out in a big tub and
ornies for the small trees in one box. So, if
I don't want to put the big tree up, next year,
I only need to get out one tub and one box
for the trees. And one or two for what ever
I want to decorate the fireplace with. You
can sure collect a lot of stuff! I decided it
took too long to do it all, so next year it is
going to be different!

It looks like everyone is having a lot of
snow or cold, or both! I know it is colder
here and the temps just keep going down.
Well, I hope you all have a great year and
are able to accomplish everything you set
out to do....

So, with that said, I think I will go finish
reading a friend's post and get something
done today.

Stay warm & thanks for coming by....
Meet a Bear Monday is tonight...I need to
go find one to post.

  1. Happy Birthday to you! I hope you have a great day!
    I had to giggle at your football comment...I have been refering to my figure as "Humpty Dumpty-ish" for quite awhile. This is the year that I will be changing that, though! :)
    Take care-

  2. Happy Birthday Karen!
    I look more like a basketball..... :(
    But I hope to work on that fact going to Curves with my daughter in a couple hours.
    Hope you have a wonderful day!

  3. A big Happy Birthday to you Karen! I can relate to the "football" figure-when your only 5' tall it isn't so pretty. I'm bound to work on getting more excercise too. I also downsized our tree a few years ago. Our house is to small for the big one we've always had and I sure liked the one I've been using instead. Still looks good with all the decorations we've had for years and with the kids grown and in their own homes it is working out fine for us. When they were home to help it was great. Love the holidays just needed to sort out a few things to pass on.
    Have a great birthday!
